British Science Week


British Science Week (BSW) is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths - featuring fascinating, entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.

BSW provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the general public to produce and participate in STEM events and activities.

Anyone can organise an event or activity, and the British Science Association helps organisers plan by providing free activity and support resources. The resulting programme of events is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.

British Science Week 2015 saw over 5,000 events engage more than 1.6 million participants, with activities taking place across the UK. British Science Week 2017 will take place 10 - 19 March 2017.
